The Lovereading4Kids comment
Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppelia – these are just some of the eight classic ballet stories that are beautifully retold in this attractive volume illustrated by Lisa Kopper. All the romance and tragedy which fuels these stories and makes them perfect for performance is heightened in Margaret Greaves’s lyrical retellings.
